An Update on Xbox Audio Issues[edit]

  • Investigations are ongoing for the crashes related to audio issues on Xbox and it's suspected to be related to sound data corruption.
  • Today's patch aims to help limit the number of crashes related to these issues and will allow the team to collect data from active cases to help further investigations.
  • A new icon (see below) has been introduced and will appear in-game when a related audio issue is identified on your end.
  • If you see this audio icon, rebooting the console at your earliest convenience should help avoid the issue and minimize the chance of crashing. The team will continue to share progress updates via the Siege Twitter account as a more extensive fix for this issue is worked on.
